Catfish Museum and Welcome Center, Belzoni – Mississippi Mondays June 17, 2019

Updated: as I found it on Roadside America (link added) and added a few other links I found for sites I wasn’t familiar with.

I found this week’s Mississippi Mondays – Catfish Museum and Welcome Center, Belzoni post on Onlyinyourstate This museum is not to be confused with the Catfish Row Museum that is slated to open in Vicksburg by 2021. Took a bit longer than I anticipated to research.

Official website:

They have an Annual Catfish Festival, started 1976; this year it was April 6, 2019; first Saturday in April.
